Minister Strandhall: Sweden’s Ruling Party Wing Opposes NATO Membership
In Sweden, a political divide has emerged over the position of the women’s wing of the ruling Social Democratic Party (SSKF) on the country’s possible entry into NATO. This was announced by the party’s leader, the climate and environment minister, Annika Strandhell. Her words are quoted by Svenska Dagbladet.
“The Council of the Women’s Wing has decided to adhere to the decisions of our Congress, according to which Sweden should be militarily non-aligned and outside of NATO,” the policy said.
Strandhall emphasized that his faction has a long history of fighting for peace and disarmament.
Earlier it became known that Sweden will make the decision to join NATO on May 15. The country’s ruling Social Democratic Party is expected to hold an additional meeting on the issue of membership in the North Atlantic Alliance on this day. “The party board can then make a decision,” party leader Tobias Baudin said.
